f the supplication is combined with a complete presence and consciousness of heart for the objective and meets with the six prescribed times of a response - and they are:.The last third of the night, at the time of the call to prayer, between the call to prayer and the second call to perform the prayer, immediately upon completion of the five obligatory prayers, from the moment the Imiim ascends to deliver the sermon on Friday till the establishment of the prayer and the final hour on Friday after the afternoon prayer. Now, if this is matched with the awe in the heart and a dire sense of need before your Lord, a sense of insignificance, an earnest plead to Him and a weakness in being without His aid whilst facing the direction of prayer, being in a state of purity, raising the hands upwards towards
Allah The Most High, beginning the supplication with praises and glorification of Allah before coupling this with sending the blessings and salutations upon Muhammad a the Messenger and His servant, then offering repentance, seeking forgiveness before addressing Allah and being persistent in the request, adulating Him whilst invoking Him in hope and fear, interceding with His Oneness and Perfect Names and Attributes and offering an act of charity- if this is all performed, it would be a supplication that would seldom be rejected, especially if it corresponds with the supplications that the Prophet has informed us of that are most likely answered and those that contain The Great Name of Allah.
